Salem Alpacas is famous for our handmade alpaca duvets. Be sure to read about the production of these exquisite products on our Duvets Page.
Alpaca garments are non-allergenic, so they can be worn next to bare skin. The alpaca fibre is as soft as cashmere which makes luxurious wearables. These products are warmer than wool but lighter in weight, though this fibre is known for its durability.
We carry a large assortment of socks, sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves in many different styles and colours - something to suit everyone!
The most frequently asked question we receive is:
"Where does your product come from?"
We make alpaca fleece duvets, cat toys, felted hats, and thermal seat pads. Local ladies spin, knit, crochet and weave a variety of items. Some of our Canadian made products include socks, insoles and blankets.
We also support a Women's Co-operative in Peru. They supply us with: 100% alpaca knitted sweaters, scarves, hats, mitts, gloves, slippers, alpaca bears and woven blankets. They also machine make sweaters, blankets, and more.
If you take care of your alpaca wearables and duvets they will take care of you.
Wearables: hand wash cold water with Eucalan or mild soap, squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry.
Duvets: Dry Clean or soak in Eucalan, air dry, do NOT air fluff in dryer.
OPTION: You can use a Front Load washer because they don't agitate.
Use the gentle cycle with cold water, lay flat to dry. Do Not Put in the Dryer.
NOTE: Alpaca may shrink or felt easily if washed in warm or hot water and agitated or dried in the dryer.
